Have you been trusting God for something for the longest time but have gotten just a little weary from all the waiting because you have yet to experience the manifestation?
Whatever area of life that you're trusting God for a massive breakthrough in, I'm here to encourage you today to keep on believing!
Turn with me to Habakkuk 2:3…
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
We are living in the generation of instant gratification. When we send a text message to someone, we expect them to reply us within 5 to 10 minutes. When we order a pizza online or over the phone, we expect it to be delivered in less than an hour. We want things and we want things NOW.
And we expect God to work in that way too. We expect that the things we pray for be answered almost immediately and we get frustrated or even disillusioned when we don't see the miracles, especially after what we perceive to be a “long time”. We hate to wait.
But God doesn't work like the way we do… because He holds the big picture. He can see things that we can't and we just have to trust in His perfect timing.
Let me give you an illustration that Pastor Joseph Prince, from New Creation Church (which I attend), always loves to give.
Pastor Prince has a 3 year old boy named Justin whom he loves deeply. Like all boys, Justin gets really excited about cars but precisely because Pastor Prince loves Justin so much, he would not go out and buy him a car at this time. That is because Justin is not mature enough to drive yet and having a car now will NOT serve him (and it might even hurt him because he is not equipped to handle the vehicle).
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”
God has already sent His precious Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. If He did not withhold heaven's best from us, what makes us think that He would withhold the healing, financial breakthroughs or whatever else we are asking Him for from us?
It's just a matter of the right timing (and only God knows when the best timing is to give us what we have been praying for).
Whenever you feel disheartened, always, always, always look to His word.
I believe God wants me to tell you today to continue to “wait for it… because it will SURELY come” (Habakkuk 2:3). Beloved, keep on believing!
